Remembering 9/11

It is far from the imagination of the Founding Fathers that The United States would be Attacked and the Citizenry would over a short period of time forget what it means to come together as a people.  The challenge is to always stand for Liberty and ensure that Personal Property is secure!  As I said in my time:  Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt.” – Essay in the Public Advertiser, 1749

I understand that the Black Robe Preachers are few in the 21st Century.  Therefore the morals and virtue of the nation is wanting.  As my cousin John noted: “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion . . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

I am pleased to be able to use your modern technology.  These videos talk to the issues of remembering the truth, calling evil … evil, and challenge candidates to stand on Founders Principles.

 

 

As you look to the next election Challenge the candidates and remember:

“He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who, so far as his power and influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chosen into anyoffice of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man. We must not conclude merely upon a man’s haranguing upon liberty, and using the charming sound, that he is fit to be trusted with the liberties of his country. It is not unfrequent to hear men declaim loudly upon liberty, who, if we may judge by the whole tenor of their actions, mean nothing else by it but their own liberty, – to oppress without control or the restraint of laws all who are poorer or weaker than themselves. It is not, I say, unfrequent to see such instances, though at the same time I esteem it a justice due to my country to say that it is not without shining examples of the contrary kind; – examples of men of a distinguished attachment to this same liberty I have been describing; whom no hopes could draw, no terrors could drive, from steadily pursuing, in their sphere, the true interests of their country; whose fidelity has been tried in the nicest and tenderest manner, and has been ever firm and unshaken. The sum of all is, if we would most truly enjoy this gift of Heaven, let us become a virtuous people.” – Loyalty and Sedition, essay in The Advertiser, 1748
